Live recording of my set at Gamepak, Thomas House Dublin, 21/10/2010
It's more than novelty or nostalgia, chippy 8-bit sounds are being assimilated into electronic music by people who grew up hooked on games. We're conditioned to feel joy or frustration with the right square wave frequency (Extra life!). The bleeps are only one aesthetic tool being used by a new wave of forward thinking electronic experimentalists, and it's all dance floor compatible and big fun. The Gamepak people are doing good work pushing this stuff, you should go!
(If you liked my earlier Insert Coin mix, this is like Insert Coin Version 1.5)
